Leptotes bicolor var. alba
Oh hell, Tom. Now I want one of these. Thanks a whole steamin' pant load.
Wow! Very nice.
Sooooo nicely bloomed, Tom!
Nice blooming, well grown.
I'm really going to have to start keep track of the plants you post that I really like a lot, like that one, just in case someday I decide to grow something besides Angs.
"just in case someday I decide to grow something besides Angs."
Good for you, Floozo. I suggest the 'm' genera; Maxillaria, Mediocalcar, Masdevallia, Mzootrophion, Mpaphinia, etc. No sense surviving on a diet plate when you can have caviar.
Nice bloom, Tom.
nice one Tom. So what is the difference between this an unicolor?
Thank you all!
Why do you always ask such a difficult question? :bang:I don't know!
Picture #1 is L. bicolor; #2 is L. bicolor var. alba; #3 is L. unicolor
"I suggest the 'm' genera; Maxillaria, Mediocalcar, Masdevallia, Mzootrophion, Mpaphinia, etc. No sense surviving on a diet plate when you can have caviar."
Caviar? eeeeewww....salty fish orchids! I prefer something a little more..... ....... wait for it........ *drum roll* tangy.
Besides, while I am verily blessed with a surfeit of Angs, I actually do have representatives of three of the listed genera. I'd be happy to PM you my address if you want to send me those other two.
People don't eat caviar because it's good. They eat it because it's conspicuous, decadent consumption. Just checked my list of favorite charities. Sorry. You're not on it.
You hear that, Mike?
Yes, I heard (saw). Surprisingly enough, I never actually thought I would appear on Dale's charity list. The knowledge that I'm so low on his list that I'm actually not even on it...was truly a low blow. But in the end, I prefer Angs anyway and consider those other genera to be little better than squirrels.
Damn! For a briefly second, I really thought you were crawling out of the Ang Hole.
Forrest, L. unicolor has lateral lobes of the lip that are acute and erect. L bicolor the later lobes are entire. (I had to look this up). Color isn't a determining factor.
Forrest was messing with me, Marni. Thanks for giving him and others a straight answer though.
